Synopsis: The authors argue strongly that the evidence they have uncovered within folklore, legends, the guilds, and the oral traditions of secret societies in Scotland, link together with striking similarities. They further suggest that these links are not coincidence but the last visible threads of belief systems that have been at the center of the Scottish psyche for centuries. The Celtic Key makes sense of the underlying beliefs that have contributed to, motivated, and shaped a nation through the ages.
From the Author: From Ancient Quest, the official website of Dr Karen Ralls-MacLeod:
History is a Quest, or journey, through time. Today, as never before, there is tremendous growing interest in the history of western philosophical and spiritual traditions. Since the beginning of devolution and the new Scottish Parliament, interest in Scotland is also growing tremendously.
In this ground-breaking book, medieval religious historian and Celtic scholar Ralls-MacLeod and local Scottish historian Robertson describe the people, places, and traditions associated with Scotland's past.
The authors explore the history of the origin-myth of the Scots, the Declaration of Arbroath, the Stone of Destiny, the 'missing library' of Iona, the Picts, the Druids, stone circles and megalithic sites, the Celtic saints, the Culdees, the Celtic church, the 'Word', Scottish Arthurian traditions, the Holy Grail, the Guild traditions of medieval Edinburgh, Robert the Bruce, the battle of Bannockburn, Royal Order of Scotland, William Wallace, Rosslyn Chapel, the Knights Templar, the Blue Blanket, and much more.
In addition to examining historical sources from library, government, and museum archives, or academic and rare antiquarian books, the authors also bring to light some of the lesser known, sidelined, or previously unacknowledged aspects of history from credible sources that for one reason or another, may not have made it into the history books.
The result is a riveting read of historical detective work and a 'first' of its kind... seen by some as a real Scottish tour de force.
